Docent Lecture: "Learning to Look," Marsha Holm

May 27, 2012 -
2:15pm3:00pm

American portraits tell us about our history and heritage; they also tell us about furniture. This lecture illustrates the history of chairs from 1670 to 1994 and reviews styles and designers, including Windsor, Chippendale, Belter, 19th-century revivals, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Eames.

When you really look, you can see how artists use line, form, and color to blend an idea and an image on canvas. This lecture introduces an approach to appreciating art through a visual, rather than historical, perspective.
